Facilities and activities
The Traditional Owners of Paluma Range National Park are the Nywaigi Aboriginal people. They welcome you to their country and ask that you respect and enjoy this place. The traditional name for the Paluma Range is Munan Gumburu, which means ‘misty mountain’, an apt description as morning mists are common.
Paluma Range National Park, the southern gateway for the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, is comprised of two sections. The northern section features Jourama Falls—a picturesque waterfall framed by rainforest. To the south, rainforest-cloaked Mount Spec rises 1000 m above the Big Crystal Creek floodplain. Both areas offer a range of recreational opportunities.
